Astrobiology Magazine (exploring the solar system and beyond), or Astrobiology Mag, is an American NASA-sponsored international online popular science magazine containing popular science content, which refers to articles for the general reader on science and technology subjects. The magazine reports on missions of NASA and other space agencies, as well as presents news of relevant research conducted by various institutions, universities, and non-profit groups. In addition, the magazine provides a forum through which researchers and the general public can oversee the progress made in fields of study that are associated with the science of astrobiology. According to Phys.org, the magazine has a "vast archive of stories covering a broad array of topics ... [and] covers science and nature topics relevant to space, innovation and biology, with an emphasis on the existence, detection and exploration of life in the universe". The magazine was created by Helen Matsos, presently Chief Editor and Executive Producer, and began publication in 2000.
